Geneva Anderson is ARThound.
hound = an addict or devotee
hound = any of several breeds of dog who tracks either by sight or by scent, especially one having a long face and long drooping ears
hound = to hunt, pursue or track as a hound does
ARThound is where passion meets pragmatism–an attempt to find a venue for my curiosity about art and to connect with those who share similar interests. ARThound also recognizes the need in greater Sonoma County for an ARThound…someone who writes about the arts with the care and passion… someone who digs into the story behind the creation.
I am a free-lance writer based in Penngrove, CA who writes on art, film, music, identity, and cultural heritage. I grew up on a small farm in Petaluma, California, with lots of animals and gardens. I graduated from Petaluma High School in 1978, from UC Berkeley in 1983 and earned a masters degree from the Columbia School of Journalism in 1987 and masters degrees in public administration and economics from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School in 1988. I covered the transition of Eastern Europe and reported for 8 years from Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and Turkey. I have also worked on assignment from Mexico, South America, Asia and Central Asia. I have written for Art, Arte, ARTnews, The Art Newspaper, Balkan, Balkan News, Flash Art, Neue Bildende Kunst, Sculpture, Euromoney, Gobal Finance, The International Economy, The Press Democrat, The Argus Courier, and other publications. I have edited a number of publications, catalogs, books, and web content. I am the editor for the PACER newsletter (Post Adoption Center for Education and Research).
I am passionate about art, travel, gardening, cooking, and rhodesian ridgebacks. Elmo is the hound in my life, 120 pounds of pure joy and hound inspiration.
